Its funny that in a city that has such a large coffee culture it is hard to find a good cappuccino or café con leche that doesn´t leave you with the burnt coffee beans after taste.

Here is a list of the top 10 coffee spots throughout Buenos Aires:

Birkin, Republica Árabe Siria, 3061, Palermo Botánico 

There is something about this place, maybe its the location, being just 5 minutes walk from the Botanical gardens or the excellent coffee or latte art. The café itself has been inspired by Stumptown coffee Roasters in NYC, every little detail. Its the perfect brunch spot on a sunny day under the palm trees.

PS. try their Alfajor de nuez!


Coffee Town, Bolivar, 976, San Telmo 

This hidden gem in San Telmo market is perfect for a pit stop after work or on a Sunday after going to the market.

Their coffee is also stocked in Ninina, Gorriti 4738, Palermo Soho, Ninina has probably one of the best Soy lattes I have found and quite frankly one of the only places that stock Soy Milk.

LATTEnTE, Thames 1891, Palermo Soholattente

Bocca Al Lupo, Bonpland 1965, Palermo Hollywood

They have Croissant con Nutella, need I say more? photo-3

Barrio Cafetero, Florida 833, Microcentro

Location, location, location. Taking away coffee in Buenos Aires is such a new concept, but this place is perfect for those wanting to grab a coffee in a hurry. PS. Try their Flat Whites!photo-4 copy
